Up in '12: Amanda Mair

16 year old Amanda Mair, from a small town near Stockholm, Sweden, is gaining fast attention for her sophisticated singles, House and Doubt, released via the elegant Labrador label. Rather than take the electropop route, she's chosen a chiming, airy sound similar to that of her producer Philip Ekström's band, The Mary Onettes.

She reminds me a bit of a baby Anneli Drecker. What do you think?

Amanda Mair's debut single, House:

And her new release, Doubt

You can download Doubt for free via Labrador. An album follows in early 2012.

Really stunning for a 16-year old. She has a nice voice, and Mary Onettes are amazing--they're about due for something new? I love the nordic sound they come up with, in some ways similar to Bjorn Yttling's production work with Shout Out Louds. Lykki Li, etc. Thanks for the heads up!
